Stanley Cup Finals Best Bets + MKF Picks
Andrew Dewhirst brings you his best bets and top Monkey Knife Fight plays for tonight's Stanley Cup Finals Game 1!
Dallas Stars vs Tampa Bay Lightning 7:30 PM EST
The Stanley Cup finals are finally here. Dallas has won each of their two series openers when they were not favored and in addition, Tampa Bay has had three of their last six games decided by just one goal. Tonight, I am going to meet those two in the middle. I am going to take Dallas with the goals tonight.
Pick: Dallas +1.5(-190)
Monkey Knife Fight Play of the Night
Welcome back for another of our MKF NHL plays of the day.
More of Less 2.8x
Andrei Vasilevskiy less than 26.5 Saves
Dallas didn’t put 27 shots on Vegas in any of their five games. I don’t see that trend changing tonight, given Tampa Bay was also able to successfully suppress shots against the Islanders as well.
Anton Khudobin more than 24.5 Saves
Tampa consistently put more than 30 shots per game on to the Islanders goalies, while Dallas was able to successfully tie up Vegas in the neutral zone to keep shots down, I would be surprised to see Khudobin not have at least 25 saves.
